I have been working at Genentech full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great co-workers, nearly unlimited resources, many opportunities for scientific collaboration and to learn new technical skills, excellent company to develop your early career as a scientist

Cons

Limited chances for advancement within the company especially if at a junior level or on the technical track. Management discourages employees in research arm from seeking opportunities within other parts of the company (commercial, clinical, etc.)

    Pros

    Benefits, focus on employees and strong sense of mission to help patients. Great work environment.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy slows things down a bit. Too many committees needed Tom revies projects. This is more of a Roche legacy.

    Reduce the number of committees to expedite development.
